Welcome

My name is Jack and I have been working on this since around April of 2015.  Apps come and go, so I constantly work on updating this with what is relevant, what takes the least amount of effort, and what simply looks fun to try.  I have made thousands of dollars in cash and Amazon gift cards using all of these apps and programs since I started, and that isn’t even using them to their fullest!  I hope you get as much, if not more, out of them as I have.

Contact me here with any questions, suggestions, or to request the invitation codes for some of these programs to get their sign up bonuses.  

These all work in the USA, but some may not work in other countries.  I am working on getting that figured out and will update the listings to indicate the countries where these programs do work.

I am also working on identifying if these are websites, Android apps, iOS apps, or what other platforms are compatible with these programs.

Contests will be coming soon!

Thank you and Enjoy!

Money Minute 1: Bank Accounts

This is a new series of posts that we are trialing in 2018.

The first process of gaining money, lazily or not, is to have a safe manageable place to store it depending on how you use it. It is often best to have multiple bank accounts to manage your finances to suit your needs. The two primary types of bank accounts are SAVINGS and CHECKING accounts. Checking accounts are more flexible for frequent usage and spending, such as to pay bills and make purchases. Savings accounts are for saving for the future, with some accruing interest. These often have limits about the number of withdrawals that can be made to the account each month. Checking accounts occasionally have some accruing interest based on the lowest balance of the month.

Depending on the bank, you should always be wary of usage and overdraft fees. Every bank account has it’s own pros and cons, which is why it can be difficult to choose. Some are free to open, while others charge a monthly or one-time fee. Some are for personal use, while others are for businesses, small and large. Some are brick-and-mortar, and some are only online. Some require a minimal balance or frequency of use before charging a fee.

Achievement: NEW! Points for Heart Rate Now Available!

Email from Achievement:

Hi Lazy Money Guy,

We strive to make healthy decisions fun and rewarding. That’s why we are excited to announce that we are now able to award points for heart rate. According to the American Heart Association, being aware of heart rate helps you stay accountable around your physical exercise.

You shared heart rate activities before today through your Apple Health or Fitbit connected app(s). We are awarding you 200 bonus points for historically taking healthy actions, and will award you for all future heart rate activities.

Going forward, you will receive 6 points/day for recording heart rate activities. We hope this update makes it easier to track your progress and reach your health goals.

ShopKick adds rewards for online shopping!

Letter from the CEO:

shopkick
Hi Lazy Money Guy,

I’m excited to share that today we’ve updated Shopkick with some exciting new features. For the first time ever, you can earn kicks for shopping online!

Shopkickers have told us how much fun they have using Shopkick, and they want more opportunities to earn free gift cards and other merchandise. With these new updates, you can enjoy three new ways to get kicks for online shopping. You can now earn kicks for visiting online stores, viewing online offers, and making purchases from Apple, Boxed, eBay, Groupon, Spring, and Jet.com.

I love hearing from consumers across the country about the joy and excitement Shopkick brings to their shopping. Cassondra Taylor from Newport News, VA had an early preview of online shopping and said, “These new features will definitely help with back to school shopping! I normally use my kicks for my Starbucks addiction, but now I will use them to get school supplies for the teens.”

We’ll do everything we can to make your online or offline shopping trip — whether it’s for groceries, apparel, or electronics — as fun and rewarding as possible. I invite you to try out these new features and connect with us on Facebook to share what you think.

Happy online shopkicking!

Bill Demas
Shopkick CEO

Gift Card Granny

Gift Card Granny is where I go to buy discount eBay and iTunes gift cards.  I use the iTunes gift cards for the iOS apps that BestReviewApps lists where the app costs money.  I make that money back, plus the reward money for downloading and reviewing those apps.  Average savings on iTunes gift cards has been $0.09 for every $1.00 spent.  So I buy an app that costs $0.99, it only costs me out of pocket $0.90.  I also will get $1.00-$1.50 back on top of the full $0.99 that the app costs when I do the BestReviewApps review.  So I spent $0.90 and I potentially get back $1.99-2.49!

I also get AMC theater gift cards, so movie going is a lot cheaper (I usually find 12-20% discounts on their gift cards), plus signing up for the AMC stubs program (free for Insiders, $15/year for Premier, which I also pay for using the gift cards I purchased on GiftCardGranny!), which gives me points for purchasing tickets, food, etc. on top of waiving the online ticket purchase fees through their website or Fandango.  So I am basically earning more AMC Stubs points per actual dollar spent.

I have notification alerts should any Hulu gift cards show up.  I always look for gift cards here first before I go shopping to make sure if I can save the most money.  They can deliver e-gift cards or actual physical gift cards.

When you select the card(s) you want, you will be redirected to seller sites, not actually purchasing the card(s) in GiftCardGranny.  Some sites through GiftCardGranny have stars next to their name because they award points on GiftCardGranny which can be used for added benefits, or towards future gift card purchases.

MileUp

MileUp awards you for driving.  You get 2 points for every mile you drive.

You can use these points to enter into Sweepstakes for Amazon gift cards, cash, or even a brand new car!

You also get an in-depth look at your driving habits and stats!

They have weekly challenges that award bonus points.

Get $250 when you submit a verified accident report!

They also have something called Street Sweeps which will award surprise points when you hit certain areas or miles driven.

Mobile Performance Meter

Mobile Performance Meter is an app that run in the background of your phone and reward points. You can get around $5-10 in gift cards per month per phone when using it.  May require that your phone have a data plan.  I have used the app on phones without a data plan, but some friends are telling me it hasn’t worked for them.  I know their support team has told me they are very picky about not only what phones they approve but also locations and other factors to approve activating the accounts to start earning points.

You can earn anywhere from 10-30 points per day.  I wait till I have earned 500 points to cash out for a $5 Amazon gift card.  It costs more points per dollar if you cash out less than 500 points.

Click Here for Mobile Performance Meter App!

Payver

Payver is an iOS app that records your driving and pays you for it!

Click Here to Get Started!

You get points per mile traveled and they have certain conditions in order to maximize how many points per mile you earn.

You will need a phone mount to hold your phone in a way that it can see the road clearly and at a good angle.

When you have everything set up and ready to go, you will press the Record button and it begins recording your drive until you press the End Trip button.  When you start each trip, it will first show a cartoon road and indicates how to line it up so it matches the road you’ll be driving on.

As you drive, it will count up the points as well as show your speed and which direction you’re driving.  At the end of the trip, it will calculate the total estimated points.  They are an estimate because your road conditions and other factors will play into actual points when your trips are uploaded and reviewed.

You upload the trips and will see their progress as they upload.  Finished trips will have a check mark on them.

To see total points, achievements, team and player rankings, and rewards, click on the Profile button and then you have access to all that information and more. (Information has been scribbled over to respect privacy of other players and their usernames).

I am including the settings I have when I use the app to get the most out of it.  I have an unlimited data plan through Sprint, but I try to use WiFi whenever possible since it can sometimes have better uploading speeds for how much data each trip is.

One more thing:  This can be used to record incidents from 20 seconds before to 20 seconds after, which you can use as evidence.

The End of Pact

An email from the Pact Team:

KoinMe

KoinMe is one of the more passive video watching sites I have used.  It is easy to set up and keep going.  It doesn’t require being the main page up so you can work on other things and let it run its course.  It doesn’t have breaks or stop until their are no more Koins to earn for the day.  It has a daily limit, so once that is reached, you can close the browser and give your computer a little break, or put it to use doing something else.

You begin by selecting one of the available offers.

It will pop up a screen showing the video is about to play.  A second screen will pop up that starts playing the videos.  Once each series of videos plays, the koins are awarded.

KoinMe has some rules to follow to get the most out of it:

Click Here to Start Earning!

Voxpopme

VoxPopMe is a survey app that wants the questions asked via video recording.  As long as your smartphone has a front-facing camera, it is pretty easy to use.  They will start off many times with preliminary questions you answer to see if you qualify for the video surveys.  If you do, the video surveys will pop up.  I have made usually between $0.25 – $0.65 per video survey.

Your answers have to be between 30-60 seconds.  You have to be somewhere quiet so the recording can capture your answers.  You have to be somewhere with enough light, so they can see your face and facial expressions as you answer the questions.

Cash out is at $15 minimum via PayPal.

You can redo answers prior to submitting.  I have had to practice some because I will ramble if I don’t know exactly what I want to say.

Click Here to Get Started!

Qriket

Qriket is a game where you spin the wheel to earn random amounts of money.  You choose either blue or yellow and if the wheel ends up on your color, you win the amount they indicate in the center of the wheel.  I usually win $0.05 every few spins, but I have seen potential amounts to win as high as $1,000!  You can also challenge others to win even more!

75spinqriketchallenge

It’s a little slower earner compared to others as it is not guaranteed a win every spin, but it is fun to spin the wheel and see the winnings add up.  You can also earn spins from watching different ads.  I usually earn 10 spins per day from the ads.

Maven Things Remembered Mother’s Day Special

Yes, once in a while, I will sprinkle in a post or two about products or programs that I like to spend money on or suggest you spend your money on.  We deserve good things, to “Treat Yo Self” for being so lazy when it comes to making money.

MavenX is a site I have been using similar to Pinterest to post about products I like, products I have bought, and wishlist items as well.

They currently are highlighting a Mother’s Day special deal for the site Things Remembered and I made a board of some of the stuff I want and stuff I want to get for my wife HERE.

Their special deal is 20% off plus free shipping with promo code A159 (valid though Mother’s Day, May 14)!

Digit’s New Fee Schedule

Email from Digit:

Hey Lazy Money Guy,

Today we have a couple of big announcements to make.

As Digit becomes a more important part of our customers’ financial lives, we’ve decided to make a conscious decision about how we want to make money: We work for you, and you pay us. It should be that straightforward. Too many financial services complicate things by making money doing things not in the best interest of their customers. Charging for Digit will allow us to support our service while making sure we always do what’s right for the customer.

A monthly subscription will cost $2.99. For all existing users, Digit will remain free for the next 100 days.

We are also significantly increasing the Digit Savings Bonus. All customers will now earn a 1% Savings Bonus (up from 0.20%). With the recent introduction of Goalmojis, customers are saving more than ever, and we want to make sure you’re earning real rewards for saving with Digit.

Thank you for being an early user, believer and fan. You have helped sparked the savings revolution. We promise to continue building products that make your financial life easier and better.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Fliiby

Click Here to Get Started!

Fliiby is a program that acts like Imgur but pays you.  You can post all sorts of pictures on it, from funny to artistic.  You start earning money from views of your pictures you upload.  They have a monetization program you have to apply for and be approved prior to earning anything for your uploaded pictures and files.

You can cash out at $25USD on PayPal, Skirll, and Payoneer, or have minimum $250 wired to you.

I try to follow as many people as possible and like or comment on their pictures.  There are some amazing photographers who use this site.  I have also seen that many who I follow will tend to follow me and like or comment on my pictures I have uploaded.

Fliiby has a lot of suggestions to maximize monetization, including the way you title the picture, describe it, tag it, and filter it.  I get emails from them occasionally with cool info on how to make my account more valuable and my pictures viewed more.

SweatCoin

SweatCoin is a step tracking app.  You earn SweatCoins which can be used to redeem for fitness gear, electronics, or other cool rewards.  The rewards change daily.

1000 steps equal 1 SweatCoin.

They have a battery saver mode but it comes at the cost of not tracking as many steps.  I don’t use battery saver mode because I have a portable backup battery I use if my iPhone battery gets too low.

This app also has membership tiers.  The more steps you have per day, the higher required membership to convert those steps to SweatCoins.

Another fun thing through this app is In-Voting offers.  Other users can post items they want to sell through the app.  You can post your own items or services for others to purchase using SweatCoins.  When you post an item or service, other users vote on including it in the Available Offers section of the app.  Once it gets there, they can purchase it and you earn the SweatCoins!

Available in the US, UK, and they are working on adding other countries.

SparkProfit and Tiql

SparkProfit and Tiql are fun investing app/websites where you can make gains or losses (a simulation, or investing real money), and the bigger the gains, the more you get in actual money rewards.  I bring in anywhere from $10-20USD/week per program depending on how good my trading skills are.

SparkProfit is a play money investment/trading app, and you can get paid weekly for using it.  The more successful the trading, the higher payout you can get each week.

Tiql uses actual money, whether it is transferred from money earned in SparkProfit, or money to deposit into it.  So when you gain in the program, it is an actual gain, and if you lose, it is an actual loss.  It is not available for the USA at this time.

TIQL has country restrictions, including the USA, which cannot use this program.  USA citizens can still use SparkProfit, but can’t use TIQL.

You can cash out at $30USD.

SurveySavvy’s Project Gold

SurveySavvy has a program that runs in the background of your computer, your tablet, and your phone (Android and/or iPhone) and rewards you $5/month per device (up to $15/month or $180/year) called Project Gold.  Additionally, it is not limited to one account per household.  I have my account, my wife has hers, and we bring in a total of $30/month when connected to each laptop, tablet, and smart phone.

You will also get invites to different surveys, many of them pay $1-5, while others pay upwards of $50 when you meet pre-qualification standards.

You can cash out at a minimum of $1 at a time.  They mail a check for the amount you cash out.

By running their program on your devices, it helps them to narrow down which surveys you qualify for and saves you the time of going through prequalifying questions and rejections.

Without many users, Fronto business won’t survive. Let’s grow together and make some $$$!

Thank you!

Fronto Is Now In Canada!

An email from Fronto:

Hi Lazy Money Guy,

As of now, Fronto is officially available in Canada! Moving forward, we will launch Fronto in the other countries pretty soon. UK and many other countries are in the list.

As you know, Fronto team is a very small team of four, so we are not perfect at all. We always make some bugs, and sometimes we might not be very responsive to solve the issues. However, we are doing our best to make Fronto better.

Without your support, Fronto won’t be able to be launched in the other countries at all. I really appreciate your support and patience.

If you have any friends in Canada. Please spread the word to your friends and get 1,250P per every invited user.

Thank you!

Best,
Team Fronto

TryMyApps

TryMyApps (iOS and Android) is a quick earning program.  In about a month I made about $35 from it, and it has not slowed down.  Download the apps using their app store search keywords.  You get rewarded the money after running the app for at least 4-5 minutes (usually $0.20/per app).  And then some of the apps pay extra by playing them daily for up to 5 days in a row ($0.02/day).

Click Here to Get Started and use code HLVV7 for the iOS version or UP2RGN for the Android version for an extra sign up bonus!

BestReviewApp

Use BestReviewApp by going to their site from your Android mobile browser, or their iOS app.  You select the apps they have available, download them, use them for a few minutes, and then review them.  They say they require a 4 or 5 star review to complete the task.  If you don’t want to do a review for 4 or 5 stars, then cancel the request to review it, otherwise they count it against your account.  5 negative counts against your account, and they freeze it.  If you aren’t awarded for doing the review after 3 days, email them at their support email address.  They are pretty good at resolving issues right away.

Reviewers can get paid between $0.50 to $1.50 by writing reviews of Android and iTunes apps. I’ve made $50 in a week from this, but the amount varies depending on the apps they have available for review. You also get the money back for the paid apps you review in iTunes and Google Play! It pays to your PayPal account on Fridays and you can cash out at any amount.

It is available worldwide and no minimum cash out requirement.

YouGov Points System Updates

Email from YouGov:



YouGov What the world thinks


Hi Lazy Money Guy,

Your feedback is very important to us. Whenever we can, we will act on it to improve the experience for everyone.

We’ve received a bunch of feedback recently about the rewards program: in particular, that it takes too long to earn enough points to redeem, and that once you have enough points, some rewards cost more than others (even though they have the same cash value).

Based on your suggestions, we’ve reduced the points needed to redeem the following gift cards:

  • $15 Amazon card: was 35k, now 25k points
  • $25 Foot Locker card: was 40k, now 30k points
  • $25 Nike card: was 45k, now 30k points
  • $50 Amazon card: was 65k, now 55k points

Some rewards cost more points than others because they’re more expensive for us to process. We keep the $100 rewards at exactly 100,000 points because we want to give you every incentive to stick with us all the way through – and maybe even refer a friend!

You can see all the available rewards on your account.

Thanks for your continued participation with us!

Welcome to our new points system:

  • We pay you $10 for every 10,000 points you earn.
  • Earn up to up to 80 points a day for the daily amount of tracked activity (biking, walking, running, swimming and other forms of exercise) you do.
  • Earn up to 6 points per day for the social activities you do, like posting healthy activities on your favorite social media sites or logging your meals.
  • Staying healthy is an ongoing process and we wanted Achievemint to reflect that. That’s why there’s no limit to the amount of rewards that you can earn.
  • If you’ve been a member for a while, you might notice that you earn points more slowly. This allows us to let you earn unlimited rewards and stay motivated to keep doing healthy activities as part of your daily lifestyle. So, we think that’s a good thing.
  • In addition, we’re adding new programs that offer extra opportunities for members to earn cash or rewards on top of your baseline Achievemint points. Stay tuned for more information about contributing to clinical studies through our new Achievemint Studies product!
  • Points expire one year from the date they are earned.
  • Once you reach 10,000 points, you’ll be eligible to redeem your reward. You can usually expect to get paid within 4 weeks, often sooner.

Link certain fitness and social media apps, like Twitter, Facebook, MapMyFitness, Fitbit, etc.  The program will track it and reward points from it.

Carrot Wellness

Carrot Wellness is an app that earns you points for steps you take.  The steps are tracked with FitBit and Google Fit.  Link your Fitbit device as it is a little more accurate in steps tracked.  You can then exchange the points you earn for gift cards, entries into giveaways, and contests as well.

You earn 1 point for every 1 step you take.

Click Here to Start and get 1000 bonus points!

You can also get local businesses to partner with the app and offer rewards to use at their locations and have Carrot send info to your employer to have them use Carrot as a way to incentivize employees to be more active ($250 bonus to you if they sign up)!

DealSpotr

Dealspotr lets you post deals you find, similar to Slickdeals, but you get points you can use towards Amazon gift cards.  There are several ways to post deals:  Codes, coupons, site-wide deals, product deals, in-store or online, freebies, etc.  As you post deals, you get points for them, points for completing daily checklists, and points based on your accuracy score.  The higher your accuracy score, the more points you earn for your work.

You can also validate or correct other posts from other users.  This earns you points and helps your accuracy levels as well.

Minimum payout is $10 in Amazon gift cards.  You have to earn 10,000 per $10 gift card.

Click Here to Get Started! You will receive 2000 points for completing sign up and an additional 2000 when you complete your first daily checklist!

S’more

S’more awards 10 points per day ($0.10/day value) when you unlock your phone with it.  You can cash out any amount at any time towards an Amazon gift card.  I use it on a spare phone since it awards without having to use it more than once or twice per day.

They also give extra opportunities to earn points through surveys.  These surveys are provided through Peanut Labs.

Click Here to Get Started! Use the code 28GMAW to get an extra 25 points added to your first redemption!

WHAFF Locker

WHAFF Lockscreen rewards you for unlocking your phone.  It will have ads in the lockscreen and you swipe to unlock.  It is that simple.  I use it alongside my other lockscreen apps to add to the overall earnings I make when I unlock my phone.  Install it, log in with the same login as your regular WHAFF account (you can have both apps on your phone simultaneously), and start earning.

Click Here to Sign Up!  Use code DV86936 to get an extra reward for signing up!

WHAFF

WHAFF is an app that pays to download and run apps, which I use like CashPirate but I still use both. It sets up your account by logging in with your Facebook account.  It pays $0.05-$0.10 per app download that you open, if it is in their premium list. It then pays for daily use of 4 minutes or more, and a daily keep it on your phone payment. Plus you get paid for using apps daily that you might already be using! After it is done paying out for use and keeping it on your phone, you can uninstall the apps you don’t want to keep using.  Watch out for having a VPN or anything like that running on your phone at the same time as using this app!  

Click Here to Get the App and use code DV86936 to get an extra sign up bonus!

Nielsen Mobile

Nielsen Mobile runs in the background of your phone. It awards points per month that can be used to get gift cards or other prizes.  Points per month vary, and they offer different rewards at different values of points.  They may periodically send surveys for extra points, too.  You apply to get approved for an account with them in order to earn points through them.

Rabadaba

Rabadaba is a social media app that pays you to be social! They pay you to do everything you normally do on social media, such as posting pictures, videos or just text posts about whatever is on your mind.

The way it works is you make a post (a dab) and then other users can view your dab and upvote your post.  When a user upvotes your post, you are given a rab which is essentially the point system used. There is also an option to tip users with rabs if you really like their content.

They also have contests that award $10, $7, $5, and $1 worth of rabs for the top posts on a DAILY basis!

The app provides for a great community of users who help each other earn rabs and enter contests for even more!  It is on both Android and iPhone! Minimum cash out is $5 which is equal to 500,000 rabs.  Don’t be surprised at how quickly rabs start accruing when you use the app on a consistent basis!

They also have in-app chatting with other users to connect even more and get you more rabs!

Receipt Hog helps you get paid to take pictures of your receipts. You can earn up to 100 coins per week from scanning your receipts alone!  The max amount you can cash out is $40 for 6500 (the least amount of coins per dollar).  You can also win coins from their fun slot machine, small surveys based on your receipts, and contests they have each month.

Receipt Hog
Sorry, no spots available 🙁
Hi there, thank you for your interest in Receipt Hog!

As promised, we wanted to let you know where you stand on the wait list. Unfortunately, space is still extremely limited, and there’s no availability at the moment.

If, however, a spot does open up at some point in the future, we will send you an email to let you know (plus a little extra reward for the long wait).


Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience,
— The Receipt Hog Team —

Agua Points

Agua Points (iOS only for now) is a more altruistic money earner as their end game is to help build water wells.  Their own earnings are used towards the water well building campaign.

How it works:

Download the app, set up your account, lock your screen, and then it starts earning points.  The longer your iPhone (Android app coming soon) is locked, the more points you earn.  They do not award points 24 hours per day, but for the normal daytime hours you would normally be using it, as you are basically giving up your use of it to earn points and support their cause.

When you earn enough points, you can buy gift cards to any store they have listed (1200 points = $10 Amazon gift card, for example).

Spare5

Spare5 is a site and iOS app for completing different tasks, like writing, reviewing, editing, rating, tagging, and other tasks.  The more tasks completed, the more “XP” you earn, which makes you more valuable for higher paying tasks to come up.  The money adds up fast and the more I do, the more tasks come up, and the higher those tasks pay!

You can cash out when you reach $5 or more!

Spare5 Update on Payout Amounts

Email from Spare5:

Spare5 is still paying you every Friday – as long as you have earned at least $5.


Big things are continuing to happen at Spare5 – but the biggest thing will always be our super Spare5 Community. To help it keep growing, we’re making two key changes. 

A Small Payout Change
Payouts will still be issued every Friday by 5pm PST – but beginning February 10th 2017, the minimum earnings balance needed to be paid will increase from $1 to $5. This will help Spare5 improve tasking quality and make more tasks available to Fives who do them well. This ultimately means more and better tasks on your task lists.

A Big Tasking Change
A more exciting change is just-this-close to being here: task feedback while you’re tasking, with quality scores showing how you’re doing, plus updates and hints to give you opportunities to improve. We’re adding the final touches, and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

Thank you for being part of the Spare5 community!

Simkl

Doing work on sites like InstaGC, Clixsense and other GPT sites tend to get repetitive and possibly even boring. What I do to prevent any boredom from occurring is to watch TV shows on the left side of my screen while doing clicks and surveys on the right.

Doing a lot of clicks and surveys usually means watching a lot of TV shows and movies. But often, you might forget what episode you are up to for a show, or what movies you have watched. That is where Simkl comes in. Simkl allows you to track what TV Shows, Movies, and Anime you have watched, and can even do a lot of it automatically, using a Chrome Extension for Netflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll, as well as a Windows program for local videos you have downloaded, and even a Kodi add-on for all of your Kodi devices!

Simkl can notify you when new episodes come out using email, browser notifications, and even a Facebook Messenger bot. You can mark recent episodes directly from the Messenger app!

Check it out at Simkl.com

QoinPro

Qoinpro is more for fun and one of the most passive earning platforms. I have made a few bucks per month worth of different cryptocurrency over the past years with it. It automatically starts accruing bitcoin bits (and other cryptocurrencies) daily without having to do anything.  It also gets a lot better when you get more people signed up.  Each referral level increases your daily reward rate.  But even without referrals increasing your daily reward, it still adds up and requires no work after it is all set up.

ReceiptPal

ReceiptPal is a receipt scanning app like Receipt Hog, but you can send your e-receipts for online purchases and the points add up faster.  You can earn up to 300 points per week.  I forward all my e-receipts to them from my Amazon purchases and Google Play purchases.  The best exchange of points per dollar is 19000 points for $100 Amazon gift card, Visa gift card, or PayPal cash (but PayPal potentially charges fees for it).  

Another thing to consider:  Receipts over 14 days old when scanned will be rejected.  Make sure to scan all your receipts before they “expire”, not just to reach the 300 point max per week, but also because each scanned receipt that is accepted counts as an entry to their weekly $250 giveaway.

At the end of each month, scan any receipts you have for purchases from that month.  They allow you to scan them up to the 3rd day of the following month but then do not accept any receipts from the previous month after that.  I will scan everything I have the last day of each month so I don’t miss out on potential entries for the $250 giveaway they have for that week.

Click Here to Get Started!

AppOptix

AppOptix is an app that runs in the background of your phone and pays out in Amazon gift cards every time you reach 300 points.  300 points equals $10.  You earn up to $50/year with it.

It is limited to one device per account.  No limit to number of accounts per household.  I use it and my wife uses it on her phone so we bring in $100/year with it.  Once you’re account is approved, download the app and get started.

HitPredictor

HitPredictor is fun for those into testing out new music.  

I enjoy it cause I get $5 Amazon gift cards periodically for listening to 10-15 song samples and providing a little review of them of one or two sentences (they will email you when those contests come up, usually weekly on Wednesdays).

They also have contests for $50-100 Amazon gift cards as well as Hidden Song contests for $15-25 iTunes gift cards (I use those to buy the paid iOS apps on BestReviewApp).  They limit it to the first 50 people to listen to and review the 10-15 songs for the contests.  

The points they give per review can add up fast and be used towards purchasing CDs, DVDs, or entering giveaways for Amazon gift cards, iTunes gift cards, or other prizes.

SliceThePie

SliceThePie earns you actual cash per review!  The higher quality the reviews, the more you get paid, too.  You can also get invites to bonus opportunities and higher payout specials as you get your review rating higher.  They have several ways to review and earn money:  Music Reviews, Mobile Device Product Reviews, and Fashion Reviews.  There is even a Luck Dip option which selects random items to review.

You can rate music:

Shift Savings

Shift Savings is a spare change/rounding-up program, similar to Qapital, Acorns, and others.  It will round up your purchases, and then place the difference into a savings or EFT account (ETF accounts are investing accounts).  If you spend $1.50 on a candy bar, for example, Shift will round up that purchase to $2.00.  The $0.50 difference is what is then added to the savings account in Shift.  They total all the roundups and transfer them every Saturday.

SurveyCow

SurveyCow is a lock screen app that asks one question every time you unlock your phone.  It will award points per successful question answered.

They pay in “Beef” points.  Points vary depending on the questions asked.

It is one of the easier lockscreen apps for me and I have been making about 1000 Beef points per week.

10,000 Beef points = $10.00

Use code 6370124589 for an extra 250 Beef Points when signing up!

Click here to download the app!

If you receive the same question multiple times, it means it hasn’t registered the answer in their system, and suggest you check your network connection.  I usually go into the app and see if it is connected to my account.  The issue isn’t common and they are working on a resolution to it.

Snapstar Changes to Earning Amazon Gift Cards

Email from the Snapstar Team:

Dear Lazy Money Guy,

We wanted to give you a heads up that on Tuesday, January 31 we will be removing the Cash Out page.

Instead of this page, you will be able to earn cash (Amazon gift cards) directly from purchasing a certain number of items from participating brands.

In addition, you can still always use your stars to buy sweepstakes entries and win prizes.

Thanks for your attention, and happy snapping!

Finimize

Finimize provides a daily newsletter about the latest in financial news with an analysis of how it can affect the economy and how it can affect investors.  I’ve been reading them for months and had good results from it.  They also send a weekly email (for Finimize Insiders) which summarizes the events of the week as well as providing further analysis and information.

finimizeinsider

The information they provide works for both beginning investors and experts alike.  The information they provide has links to their sources, too, if you want to look further into what they are analyzing and reporting.

This is a free financial tool they offer.  It has helped me with investment decisions and been insightful for learning new things about the US and Global economies.  It also comes with an iOS app for Finimize Insiders, and an Android app will be rolling out soon.

AskTrim

Ask Trim is an A.I. that helps trim the fat off your finances.  It links to your bank accounts and will hunt down spending patterns, identifying subscriptions, unusual spending, balances getting too low, and other helpful resources and guidance.

You can even ask it to cut ties with your subscriptions that it finds, like Hulu, Netflix, or other things.  I love Hulu and Netflix, so I won’t cut off those unless I can’t afford them.  But everyone’s finances are different.

Sign Up Here and Ask Trim!

Powr of You

Powr of You is a website and app for Android and iOS that passively tracks your data through linking to Facebook, Twitter, Chrome, FitBit, and other programs.  They have reached a point in their growth where they will now start paying out users for linking these programs.  The more programs you link, the higher your payout can be.

It has a dashboard where you can see your own trends and analytics as well.  This is fun to see and learn about yourself.  It can track earnings, amount of data you’re sharing, as well as patterns in your Facebook posts and Tweets.

No word yet on any sign up bonuses or incentives, but as more users sign on, the more they can offer to current and future users.  So keep an eye out!

Panel App

The Panel App is super easy, install it, and let it run in the background. It pays points per day and you can get gift cards for those points.

 

I usually get the $25 Amazon gift cards through it (15,000 points).  That is the highest payout for the least amount of points.

You can use the points from the Points Panel or the Bonus Panel to enter in giveaways and sweepstakes.

They do offer surveys occasionally that give you additional points.  They are short surveys of 2-5 questions sometimes.

You also get extra points from referring friends, too.

MooCash

MooCash is a lockscreen app that has you download apps or other tasks from the lockscreen.

Some apps only need to be installed and opened once (keep the apps running for at least 5 minutes to finalize the tasks), others require keeping them on the phone for at least 3 days to be paid out in full.  It is one of the faster earning apps I have as a lockscreen (I have it installed on a different phone than my main phone).  I made $10 my first few days using it since I went for every task the lockscreen gave me.  They claim you can earn up to $5 per day.

They allow having it on at least two devices per account.  If you don’t earn coins from downloading and playing the apps for the minimum 5 minutes, they will alternatively award you with diamonds you can use to play games on Moojoy for additional coins.

There are additional methods to earn coins.  You can now open the MooCash app and select apps to download and run for coins in addition to downloading apps from their lockscreen.

Suchflex Shut Down as of November 25, 2016

Here is the email they sent out:

Dear Lazy Money Guy,

Ivan and John started Suchflex with the goal of bringing the benefits of distributed computing to everyone. Although we have been successful in getting interest from owners of consumer devices to contribute their computing resources, we have not made as much progress in building the demand-side of our distributed computing marketplace. With that in-mind, we have made a difficult decision to suspend our consumer-facing Suchflex service for the time being.

IMPORTANT:

All Suchflex users who have current earning on the Suchflex platfrom will be redeemed by this Friday – November 25th 5pm PST. Please make your preferred Redemption choice by that time. If you have not communicated a choice to us by that time, we will redeem through Coinbase to the email on record for your account.

FLEXCOIN:

Everyone who has made redemptions into FLEX, will be redeemed in USD +10% of their original redemption. (ie. If you have redeemed $100 into FLEX, you will be paid $110 USD). The payments will go to your communicated preferred method of receiving redemptions by this Friday – November 25th 5pm PST. If you have not communicated a redemption choice to us by that time, we will redeem through Coinbase to the email on record for your account.

FUTURE:

If you would like to stay in touch with us and hear about our future developments – great! – there is nothing to do. We have your email on record and will shoot you a message in the future. If you would not like to receive future emails, please unsubscribe below.

Flex on,

– Ivan, Co-Founder and CEO at Suchflex

MobileExperienceMeter Shutting Down – Embee Update

Email from Embee on November 23, 2016:

Thank you for participating in the Mobile Experience Meter program!


This research program is now ending for some devices in your region. If you’re receiving this email, your points will stop being generated in Mobile Experience Meter on Nov 22nd.


Do you want to keep earning points?


Join the Mobile Performance Meter program, and we will automatically transfer your points!


https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.embeepay.mpm


Even if you were not eligible for the Mobile Performance Meter before, we have recently added support for all carriers in all location in the US, so you may be eligible today.


Or, you can just redeem your points from Mobile Experience Meter and uninstall. You have until Nov 30th to transfer or redeem your points from MobileExperience Meter.


Questions You May Have:


“How do I transfer my points?”


Very easy — just install and join the Mobile Performance Meter program on the *same device* that you are currently running the Embee Meter, and the points will be automatically transferred.


“How can I tell if my points were transferred successfully?”


You can see the transfer in your account history. In the Mobile Experience Meter app, you will see a negative “special bonus” transaction that zeros out your Embee Meter balance. In Mobile Performance Meter, you will see a matching positive “special bonus”  transaction for the same point, adding those points to your Mobile Performance Meter balance.


“I am already earning points using the Mobile Performance Meter, can I still transfer my points?”


Currently, the automatic transfer functionality is only available for new Mobile Performance Meter users. Thank you for using our apps!


“I tried to register the Mobile Performance Meter before, but was told I didn’t qualify. What do I do?”


Just try again! Mobile Performance Meter is now available to all carriers anywhere in the United States! So, even if you didn’t qualify for Mobile PerformanceMeter before, you should qualify now! Make sure you install the Mobile Performance Meter from Google Play, so you are sure to get the latest version of the application. If you don’t install the current version, it may not work correctly.


“I uninstalled Mobile Experience Meter already, but I think I had some old points there. Can I still have them transferred?”


Yes, your old points should be transferred when you successfully join the Mobile Performance Meter program.


“I make a different amount of points on Mobile Performance Meter. Why?”


The study is a little different in this case, so, yes, the point amounts may be different, too, depending on your location and other factors.


Thanks!


The Embee Team

CashPirate

CashPirate is an app that gives coins from downloading and running apps as well as other offers. Download the apps they list, run them, and get coins!  Some apps can be installed and opened for 30 seconds then uninstalled to earn coins.  Others require downloading, running for a minute or two, and keeping on your phone for 3 days to earn coins.  I personally put notes on my calendar to go back to the 3 day apps and either remove them or keep the ones I like.

They also offer doing surveys for coins.  The surveys will say how long they usually take and the number of points awarded for completed surveys.

I cash out at $5 increments since it is the best value of coins.

Click Here to Download the App then enter code “PRBKHE” at signup for an additional 500 coins.

Clixsense

Clixsense is a GPT and survey site similar to Swagbucks which works well both in the US and the rest of the world, giving international earners a chance to profit from their extremely high-paying surveys. They also offer a substantial reward for completing the daily checklist, as well as some great bonuses from the Clixgrid game. This will teach you the basics of how to start earning on Clixsense.

To Get Started, Sign Up Here!

You will want to install the ClixAddon for your browser, which will send you notifications when new surveys are available, thus giving you an edge on the competition. In addition, if you complete your daily checklist, you will be granted an extra bonus just for having the addon active.

I highly recommend completing the daily checklist to get the most earning potential. You can earn a bonus of up to 16% of your earnings, plus an additional 1% for having the extension running and for completing your checklist 3 days in a row. To complete your daily checklist:

  1. Click at least 6 PTC ads, just click on the view ads button, and complete a captcha, then wait for the ad to credit. clixsense1
  2. Click at least 20 squares in the Clixgrid game, these work on the same premise as the PTC ads, only this time you can win prizes of up to $10, and you have 30 chances every day.clixsense2
  3. Now that you have these out of the way, you have the choice of either completing 10 tasks, 2 offers/surveys or 5 tasks and 1 offer/survey. The tasks (basically miniature jobs which offer a small payout) and offers (register for a service or download an app etc.) are fairly standard, and will be familiar to anyone acquainted with GPT sites. The surveys, however, are where the real money lies. These are the highest paying surveys of any GPT site I know. It is not unusual for me to be credited $2.50+ for a survey that takes less than 10 minutes. These will make up the bulk of your earnings, so I highly recommend completing all the survey profilers available.clixsense3
  4. Last, visit the forum, and it does’t require any real effort on your part. After this you can enjoy your daily bonus, plus the extra bonuses!                clixsense4

You can upgrade to premium for only $17 which will drastically increase your earnings.  Refer Clixsense, the commissions from referrals increases by having a premium account. You can cashout at a minimum of $8 ($6 for premium members), I prefer through Paypal.

Maven Social Media Earnings Program

Maven recently started a new feature to earn more.  You can now link your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram).  The more reach you have, the more potential earnings you get.

Here is the email I received (personal information and details have been removed) from Maven’s VP of Marketing and Account Management, Jessica Duncan:

Hi Lazy Money Guy,

Maven has launched a new feature that will allow us to bring you new opportunities to earn money. From time to time, retailers in our network will offer money to members like you if you share products you like from the retailer with your friends and followers. These “sharing events” will happen on an ongoing basis and will be another way to earn at Maven.

The first sharing event could come later this week with ASOS, a fast-fashion, women’s and men’s apparel retailer. We will be offering our members $5-$100 to create a board using products from ASOS and sharing that board on any social network pages you have.

Your earnings will usually be based on how many people follow you in social media.

If you are interested in participating in these sharing events, we will need to obtain the number of followers you have on each of 4 social networks: Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram. To make collecting that information easy for you, there are 2 steps as noted in the below images:

1.    Access your profile on MavenX.com. You will see a section labeled “Your Social Accounts” with buttons for each of the 4 networks.

2.    Click each network where you have an account.  This will “link” your social account to Maven. Once that’s done, the profile page will automatically obtain the number of friends and followers you have in each network.

We expect several more of these sharing events. Please update your profile and keep an eye out for my invitation to participate. And, if you don’t receive an invitation for the ASOS sharing event, don’t worry. We’ll keep you on the list and bring new sharing events to you from other retailers when we have them available.

Of note, the ‘success’ of these campaigns come from successful purchases in your network. The retailers look for ‘reach’ but also conversion. With that said, personal outreach may help you gain those much needed purchases that can result in MORE of these type of opportunities for you! 

Thanks!

Swagbucks Tutorial: Homepage Breakdown

Hey guys!

It’s finally time for my long overdue homepage tutorial!
I was down for a bit because my laptop tried to melt/catch on fire… yes, seriously.
But, we’re good now so lets get to know our Swagbucks Homepage!

I took a screenshot of my homepage and highlighted the parts I’ll be going over in red, I also blocked out the survey numbers because we’re not supposed to share those with anyone.

Search & Earn: Basically the same thing as a yahoo search bar, but anytime you search through the Swagbucks site you have a chance to earn from 5-99 Swagbucks through search wins.

Swag Code: A Swagcode is a secret code or word that gives you points when you enter it into this box. When a new code is released it is posted to the Swagbucks website or one of their social media pages.

Daily Goal: This tab shows you how many points you need to get the daily bonus. There are two daily goals; your first goal is blue, the second is red. Any bonus points earned credit at the beginning of the following month.

  • Blue Goal: This goal counts towards your monthly streak, if you complete the blue goal every day of the month you earn an extra 300sb bonus. (credits at the beginning of the following month)
  • Red Goal: This goal is a chance to earn more sb towards your bonus. If you complete the red goal you earn the red goal bonus points, plus any streak you complete for the month.

Streaks: 7 day = 25sb, 14 day = 100sb, 21 day = 200sb, whole month = 300sb.Total: Your SB total can be found in the top right of the screen, you can also click the arrow next to your picture and open:

  • My SB: A breakdown of everything you have earned, ever. When you earn on the site it will be added to this list.
  • Redeem: Quick link to the Swagbucks redemption page, cash in your points for giftcards.
  • Shop & Earn: A list of all stores you’ve visited and purchases you have made through Swagbucks.
  • Swag Ups: You can earn rebates from team challenges and your birthday, when you cash out your points your swag up will be applied automatically and you’ll get the sb back.
  • My Giftcards: A place to check on the status of any gift card you’ve cashed in for.
  • Order Status: Where to see if your giftcards have been shipped to your account yet.
  • Referrals: A list of everyone that signs up through your link.
  • Swagstakes: Basically swagbucks lottery, gamble your sb to try and win giftcards/rewards.
  • Settings: Your settings, obviously… change your info, address, password, etc.

Paribus Acquired by Capital One

According to TechCrunch, Paribus was acquired and will be part of their campaign to have price tracking through the use of Capital One’s U.S. Card division (specifically their credit card price protection service).  The Paribus program will still be fully operational while working with Capital One’s efforts to expand their programs and services using Paribus’ technology and algorithms.

I will be posting more updates as I get them directly from Paribus.  They have been busy with the transition to being a part of Capital One, but once the dust settles, I am sure there will be plenty more information.

 

WeFitter

WeFitter is an international app that rewards for fitness activities!  Points can be earned through steps, biking, going to the gym, swimming, yoga, and other activities.  These points can be used to get Runtastic Premium, discounts to some international stores, and gift cards.  More rewards are added, so keep checking in to see what they have available.

The app also has challenges you can join, whether with friends or other users to reach certain steps or activity levels to earn extra points.  This is a fun way to see your activities help a group effort to reach goals you might not have been able to or motivated enough to do on your own.

Frequent Flyer

Frequent Flyer is an app from the same people that made the Panel App.  If you have an account on the Panel App, they won’t let you set one up on the Frequent Flyer app, so make a new account with a different email address if you want both.

It is very similar in that you are rewarded points for allowing it to track location and other data, fill out periodic surveys, and run in the background.  The difference is what the rewards are.  This app focuses on travel rewards, literally Frequent Flyer miles through airlines (Alaskan Airlines, Southwest Airlines, etc.).  You can also redeem for gift cards to the airlines or to Hotels.com, Marriott, Hilton, and even AirBnB!

They also offer sweepstakes for chances to win the above listed rewards as prizes!

Honey

Honey is a program (they have a website and a Chrome extension you can use) that helps you find great deals and also earns you commission on purchases you make through it.  It finds deals on Amazon, Groupon, Fandango, and other stores, and when you use the Find Savings or Activate options on those deals, you start earning HoneyGold (G). 1000G equals $10.  You get to earn a randomized commission amount from your purchases made through the Honey program.

It runs in the background as you shop and tracks the purchases you make to calculate the HoneyGold earnings.  It adds up fast when you do a lot of shopping.
